LSTS Toolchain



Cloud Services used for accessing, storing and relaying real-time asset information. Ripples is used to collect data from different sources and maintain a global situation. It can be accessed through the Web (using REST APIs) or Iridium.

Ripples is also used to connect to remote assets by serving as a proxy between Iridium and the Web. All data being sent and received from remote devices is stored in Ripples, enabling coordination among geographically distributed teams, even in communications-restricted environments.
